Weekly Parent Email – February 25, 2022

February 25, 2022

Part of what makes Leadership Academy of Utah special is the emphasis on the whole student and not just the academic experience. As such, we are excited to kick off our annual Wellness Week next Monday, February 28! LAU hosts Wellness Week each year to provide resources for your student that will help them navigate life’s challenges. Each day will cover a different topic.

  • Monday, February 28: Communication Skills
  • Tuesday, March 1: Self Confidence
  • Wednesday, March 2: Managing Stress
  • Thursday, March 3: Making Friends & How to be a Good Friend
  • Friday, March 4: Positivity & Optimism

This week, all parents should have received an email including each day’s content and details about the online course. As always, please feel free to reach out if there is anything we can do to improve your student’s educational experience.

Executive Director, LAU
